Wanted to get some feedback on Viking Yachts. Does anyone on the board have one? Had one? Opinions?

He's right...they don't suck! I have my own opinions about boats, but there's nothing wrong with a Viking (or an Egg Harbor as talked about a few threads down).
If buying new, I'd give serious consideration to a Carolina built hull. But that's JMO.

Viking makes an awesome boat for a being a production hull.
Ask reel doozy (TFM), aka: Kenny who is a Yacht Broker and been a Captian for many years. he can give you both side of the story. Currently owns and runs a 58 foot Sculley.

I beleive Capt Joe is running a 57 Viking and just returned from a trip to the islands.

My father-in-law to be has a 57"
It is an awesome machine. Not the fastest vessel but very fishable and the most comfortable ride I have ever been on.

Thanks for all the feedback. One of my concerns was that it was a production hull, that has its +'s and -'s.
What is everyone's thoughts on Hatteras Yachts. There are a bunch of 60's on the market with enclosed bridges that looks pretty nice?
